Calculus 1

Calculus 1 studies rate of change in functions while learning methods, techniques and applications as a whole. Isaac Newton used calculus to develop his laws of motion and theories on gravity. Discover how Tangent Lines and Limits represent the slopes of curves at specific points and used to find Maximum and Minimum Values of a Function. Building upon the basic mathematical knowledge that covers different types of functions, such as exponential or quadratic, Calculus 1 elevates your comprehension in Rules of Differentiation. Finding the derivatives of functions, including Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions, will challenge your skill set and elevate you to a more advanced level within the Mathematics department. Calculus 1 is an important branch to mathematics offering a variety of Applications of Differentiation that open the doors to advanced topics in physics, engineering, and other sciences.
